At the Tennessee State Parks Conservancy, we work to support projects and programs that preserve, protect and enhance Tennessee’s parks system.
Thanks to a generous gift from Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), we are proud to unveil a new all-terrain wheelchair, now available for use at Radnor Lake State Park.
This wheelchair will allow those with mobility issues to hike trails and explore nature at their own direction – something that many of us take for granted every day.
The $136,000 grant from TVA will also fund an all-terrain wheelchair at Tims Ford State Park, an accessible kayak launch at David Crockett State Park and transportation for students at select schools to visit Tennessee State Parks. We’re very grateful for the support as we work in partnership with Tennessee State Parks to break down these barriers and move closer to our goal of becoming the most accessible park system in the nation.
You can find more information on the new all-terrain wheelchair, as well as details on Tennessee State Parks’ current accessibility initiatives at www.tnstateparks.com/about/accessibility. Tennessee State Parks will update the page when new offerings are made available. All-terrain wheelchairs are available free of charge. Visitors should contact the park in advance to ensure availability.
